Junior School Principal
My name is Hana Tjong and I have been serving in SPH schools for the past 20 years. It has been such a blessed journey for me. I started as a Kindergarten teacher in SPH Sentul City. My first teaching partner was a first year teacher from Canada. I learned a lot from her as my education background was not for being a teacher. After two years, I started to teach other grade levels and changed almost every year. I ended up teaching for 13 years in SPH Sentul City.
Then God brought me to SPH Lippo Village to learn more things as an administrative principal at Junior School. I started my first year as an associate for the administrative principal in Junior School. I had great mentors there during my first year. Mr. Gregg Faddegon and Ibu Irene Tjandramihadja taught me many things about leadership in Junior School. Mr. Phillip Nash taught me how to be a good leader and He has always been my mentor and role model in serving the teachers and department.
Then I worked with Mr. Michael Huizenga who taught me to be humble and calm in dealing with many situations. I served in SPH Lippo Village for 6 years in total.
Since July 2021, I have been assigned to serve at SPH Kemang Village as an administrative principal for this school. It is a great honor for me to work with the team in SPH Kemang Village. I have learnt many things within a very short period of time. Ms. Carol Souisa as the academic principal is my partner in this school. One of my roles is to handle the matter with the government and keep the regulations to be implemented in SPH Kemang. Other than that, my role is to make sure that teachers can teach well and fulfill the needs of teachers on the administrative side. I am grateful to have awesome teams in SPH Kemang Village. All the team members have the heart to serve God and others, out each other first and show care as well as taking the responsibility as professionals.
Since the beginning, I believe that being a teacher is a path that God wants me to follow. It is a calling and a path of this life I’m living. The moment I started to serve at SPH Sentul CIty, I believed that God put the vision in me to continue as an educator.
SPH Vision and mission has been the strength for me to keep continuing in serving the students in all that I do. No matter the roles that I have, I believe that it will help to make the vision alive. I am looking forward to serving together with the SPH Kemang Village team in many years to come as God’s will will be done.
